The Xiaomi Mi Box 4S Pro is now orderable globally for US$78.99
It has only been a week since Xiaomi unveiled the Mi Box 4S Pro in China, where it retails for CNY 399 (~US$60). However, the device is already available to order from retailers like Banggood, albeit at an inflated price of US$78.99. Nonetheless, the Mi Box 4S Pro can stream content in 8K, thanks to its HDMI 2.1 port.
To recap, Xiaomi has equipped the Mi Box 4S Pro with a quad-core Amlogic processor that can reach 1.9 GHz. There is also an ARM Mali-G31 GPU onboard, which allows the device to also stream HDR content. Additionally, the Mi Box 4S Pro can decode H.265 and VP9 codecs at 24 and 30 FPS, respectively. According to the Banggood listing, the Mi Box 4S Pro is limited to decoding 4K content in up to 30 FPS, too. By contrast, the device can reach 60 FPS at 1080p.
The Amlogic processor is complemented by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of flash storage. There is no Ethernet connection on the device, but it supports up to 802.11 ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 LE. The latter is used to communicate with a remote, which Xiaomi bundles with the TV box. Banggood expects to begin shipping Mi Box 4S Pro orders 'before November 22'. Please note that orders will ship from Banggood's Chinese warehouse.
